    In what type of environment would this server be located? Personal Home
    If your server is located in your personal home, please specify the name of your Internet Service Provider (ISP). HKBN
    If your server is located in a Datacenter, please specify the name of the company hosting it. Nodes will not be allowed to run on Hetzner. If you do, you will not receive compensation.

    Do you already own sufficient hardware to meet the published xx network BetaNet Node specifications (found here)? Intel(R)_Core(TM)_i5-10400F Nvidia Geforce RTX 3080, 16gb RAM, 1tb SSD
    Do you have hardware you would like to use but does not meet the stated BetaNet node specs? If so, please provide specs on that hardware below:
    Why do you want to be a node? Always been interested in crypto, been very big on Eth, Rune, and Cardano. So being exposded to being a node feels like a natural step in terms of learning more and being more involved in the crypto/blockchain space.
    How did you originally hear about the xx network? Word of Mouth
    Which current xx network communities are you a member of?
    • Twitter
    • Discord
    • LinkedIn
    Are you an active member of those communities? Yes
    What specifically, interests you about the xx network platform? speed of settlement, linear scaling and security level of the platform seems strong
    Outside of xx network communities, are you an active participant in other node or developer community groups? If so, which ones?
    Have you ever attended a blockchain conference? If so, which one(s)?
    Do you have past experience managing communities or creating content to be distributed across social media? Please enter details for all with which you are comfortable or have experience:
      As part of growing the xx network community, are you willing to create content as part of operating an xx network BetaNet node? Examples would be node setup & on-boarding review vlog post, bi-weekly twitter update, medium review of on-going node operational process, etc. No
      Would you be interested in helping to lead the development of the next xx network community? Yes
      Why do you want to run a node in the xx network
      • To earn xx coins
      • To help build David Chaum's vision of a decentralized world
      • To help build true digital cash to fuel a decentralized economy
      • To reverse the political centralization of legal, police, and military organizations which favor the wealthy and powerful
      What is the difference between decentralized networks and distributed networks, and where on the decentralization spectrum do you sit? Decentralized means that there is no single point where the decision is made. Every node makes a decision for it’s own behaviour and the resulting system behaviour is the aggregate response. Distributed means that the processing is shared across multiple nodes, but the decisions may still be centralized and use complete system knowledge. I believe in a decentralized model.
      As best as you can given currently available information, please describe the value proposition of the xx network platform and how it differs from other current blockchain solutions. Privacy is compulsory and standardized 1 node per person makes it fair game. Value of coin is fixed, ensuring fairness across the network
      Privacy by Default is a goal of the xx network Platform. In your opinion, why is Privacy by Default critical for the future of the internet? Power to the people. It's important to not let big conglomorates dictate how to use individual's data/info.
      In your opinion, what threat, if any, do quantum computers pose toward decentralized systems? What about centralized systems? Centralized = huge/easy to target. Not hard to figure out where to hit and is a lot more predictable. Decentralized = takes way more time to break down, even if one small party gets attacked it won't break the whole network down

      an interessting location with a solide application
